Urban Rail Transit Platform Passenger Alighting and Boarding Movement and Experiment Research
With the improvement of the urban rail transit network and the rights of passengers demand, passenger traffic continuously raised, the operation of urban rail transit with the rights to add pressure. For urban rail transit system, the station for line capacity plays a decisive role, while getting in motion in the station is a key part of the passenger flow in the platform. So, in this paper, we study focuses on the junction between the train and the platform of passengers getting on or off motion and its influencing factors. This paper uses orthogonal experimental method to design experiment. Using the simulation experiment platform and the simulation experiment of the simulation software, two methods are used to study the passengers’ on and off motion. The time of getting on and off is used as experimental index to evaluate the result of experiment. As a result, it is important to cut down the time of train stop, reduce platform congestion and reinforce the operation and management level of urban rail transportation.
